5/31/11. Rev. Bruce McKay. Interview with Rev. Bruce McKay, founding president of VOICE-Buffalo, and pastor of Pilgrim-St. Lukeâs United Church of Christ. We talked with Rev. McKay about the history and purpose of VOICE-Buffalo, and the organizationâs longstanding opposition to casino gambling in Buffalo, NY. VOICE-Buffalo is a faith-based community organization, with member congregations of various faiths throughout Buffalo and Erie County. It is now celebrating 15 years of active leadership in the community. VOICEâs opposition to gambling is not based on a âmoralâ opposition to gambling itself, but a concern about the casinoâs economic and social impact on a community already troubled by poverty and numerous social problems.
